in thread YAP6: A p5 approach to p6
It's interesting to me that there seems to be this "holy trinity" of major Perl 6 features (that may even interest different parties):
- The new language syntax (I'm looking forward to this)
- The buttons and knobs that will allow you to remake the language into whatever you want it to be (language connoiseurs, or others looking to guide the evolution of Perl 6)
- having a generic vm that can run multiple languages (I think this may include being able to access libraries written in language A from your program written in language B) (would be nice for many, if it were possible, but Perl 5 seems to have done fine without this ability).
Is Perl 6 only "Perl 6" if you get all three of those?
